Arsonists set multiple fires in the Judea & Samaria region. The fires are considered terrorism, aimed at overwhelming the Fire and Rescue services. Since November, there have been an average of 500 fires per month, many of them causing massive damage to wildlife, fields, and infrastructure. Israel’s fire chief is expecting many more fires in the coming days as Israel experiences a severe heat wave. Many fires came within close distance of homes, endangering both properties and lives. The Civil Administration, Israel’s governing body in the Judea & Samaria regions, said “We will continue to do all that we can to increase the cooperation with the Fire and Rescue Services and local Palestinian and Israeli authorities.” Please pray for prevention of fires before they begin. Please also pray for justice to be done to any who set fires on purpose, endangering the lives of both Israelis and Palestinians. Lastly, please pray for a strengthening of the Fire & Rescue services, and for strength & safety for all firefighters.
